Credits: 3 credits
Continuing from PHIL 2010 and PHIL 2210, this course is the advanced study of moral theory. Presented for analysis are meta-ethical theories concerning why we are moral beings, and several theories about how we decide what is right and wrong. In deciding good from bad, a number of theories have been established, all of which have something worthwhile to offer. Students investigate theories and philosophers which may include Mill, Kant, contractarianism, feminist ethics of care, relativism, and Aristotelian virtue ethics.
Prerequisite: PHIL 1010 or 1020 or 1100 or 2210 or 2010
